Getting the Gunk Out of Wastewater Treatment Plants
Located in the heart of central Texas is the growing City of Killeen. Lured by cheap land and a strong economy, people moving in from other states could drive population up 36% over the next two decades to nearly 200,000.
The Bell County Water Control Improvement District No. 1 treats sewage generated by this growing population via two plants: a 21 mgd central plant and a 6 mgd south plant (maximum capacities). Both were meant to treat primarily residential sewage, but as the city’s southern corridor grew so have the number of restaurants.
Flint Water Crisis
The water tragedy in Flint, Michigan, has been the subject of extensive media coverage, both locally and nationally. Unfortunately, as with any incident of high public interest, the race to provide immediate coverage can lead to inaccurate or incomplete reporting. LAN offers this resource as a place to learn the truth about its involvement with the transfer of water from the Detroit source to the Flint River.
